If you want to experience the thrill of fishing in Japan without having to worry about the logistics, Outdoortrips Guided Service has the answer! You just have to get pumped up for an awesome angling adventure!
Captain Edward Hosack will pick you up at the Iwakuni train station at 6:30 AM. That gives you plenty of time to visit a store for some boxed lunch and for the captain to grab the ice. After that, he’ll take you to the dock and you’ll cast off on your trip.
You’ll be fishing from a 61’ saltwater fisherman manufactured by Tanaka Boats. She’s local in both spirit and form, the boatbuilders are local and the engine is a 550 HP Isuzu. Up to 7 anglers (plus the captain) can fish in comfort, you can chase the bite all around her long deck. Comforts don’t stop with being able to run around, there’s a full-head toilet on board so you can focus on the perfect cast instead of holding it in. A full complement of safety and navigational equipment is on board.
You’ll go after a wide range of local species like Japanese Snapper, Amberjack, Flounder, Mahi Mahi, and whatever else crosses your path. Kids aged 9 and above are more than welcome to join you on this excursion. Capt. Edward is a pro at getting them engaged and in teaching anyone on board topwater casting or vertical jigging.
Remember to pack a cooler to bring your tasty treats back home with you, the captain will clean and fillet the catch after the trip. There’s a first mate on board to assist you with anything you need – gratuity is greatly appreciated.
